If your tax return has your personal bank information that was used to either receive a direct deposit of your refund or was used to pay your tax due then the IRS has your bank information to use for your direct deposit of your stimulus check.

TurboTax does not have a way for you to register your bank information to receive the Stimulus check as a direct deposit.

 

The IRS is in the process of setting up a portal for you to register that information with them.

 

Check on the IRS web site later this month for the portal at www.irs.gov

Thanks for the answer.  I thought I heard that TurboTax is helping the IRS somehow with getting Stimulus checks mailed or direct deposited.  Maybe not.   BUT, everything I have heard in the news says something to the effect of  "If you had Direct Deposit on your 2018 or 2019, then IRS will get you the Stimulus pymt via direct deposit".  Well, I did not have Direct Deposit.  I had Direct Debit from my bank account to pay taxes due in 2018 & 2019.    Still supplied Bank Acct info in my tax return, so hopefully my Stimulus check will still be direct deposited to that same account.

not so sure that is a factual statement. i pay every year, via turbotax, with my bank account. every person i know has received their stimulus today, but I have not.  when i check at: 

https://sa.www4.irs.gov/irfof-wmsp/notice;jsessionid=KxLcCwZlRruyTcOSzykjbtTB.33

it tells me there is no information.  ive paid my taxes for over 30 years and they have "no information" on me? so glad i have never depended on the govt to pay my bills, because I'd be screwed right now.

You might try the IRS’s just-unveiled Get My Payment application that you can use to let them know your correct bank account information, if they don't have your direct deposit information and haven't sent your payment yet.  Please see the IRS's Economic Impact Payments page for more information.
